I feel like I've been talking about paring down my beauty routine forever, but besides buying less makeup/skincare and recycling all my empties I feel like I haven't made much strides towards a greener beauty routine. Then in early spring I got an email about Loop x Ulta Beauty.

The title of this post sounds like code you'd use to get into a speakeasy (when getting into speakeasy's was a thing.) but I promise I'm going somewhere.

I started May off in my favorite place in the world, New York City, with my extended family who I love and have missed dearly. My time in New York revived me. It opened my eyes. After a difficult talk with one of my close friends I decided I wasn't going to wait for life to get tired to hit back, and that May was going to be a month for change and growth. It goes without saying that being vaccinated and spending time with my vaccinated family members was my favorite thing about late April/early May. However, I wanted to round up some of my favorite things right now. Big shout out to my friend Liz for these first three favorites. They were birthday presents!

Back in March my dear friend Mallory asked me how I wanted to spend my birthday. I've never been much of a birthday person minus my mid-teens but this past year has definitely made me reconsider. So, we decided on a picnic at my favorite place in Kansas City, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

I've thought about how I'd go about writing this post so many times. Carrie Bradshaw once said, "The most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself." Over the course of the past year my relationship with myself has been exceptionally challenging to say at the least.

Everyone's relationship with makeup and beauty products looks a little different these days. While my skincare routine never falters I have been easing back into a daily makeup routine. Since I haven't shared any beauty favorites since last March I thought I'd share some current favorites that I've been using that have me re-inspired.

I'll be completely honest I've never been a big belt person until I found the right one. I think the closet clean out of 2016 made me apply the elimination diet to my accessories. Except that I never reintroduced belts back into my collection until I found this one. See the original post here, but this belt is the one for me.

Like many a few months into 2020 my tried and true beauty routine vanished. I struggled to get ready to WFH. Most days I'd end up with a bare face, wearing jeans, and a Lakers sweatshirt. Sometime in November I started toying with the idea of actually getting ready to WFH in 2021. I wanted to start wearing my clothes again, and also regularly getting ready before I started my workday.

The other day I was talking to my friend about the project pan concept. However, she was unfamiliar with it. So, I told her I'd write a blog post about it. So this one goes out to you, Abbey.
